United States - Q&A from the press briefing (19 November 2020)


Q : What is your comment on the U.S. decision to partially withdraw its troops from Iraq and Afghanistan?

R : The minister publicly expressed the importance for France of continuing international support for the fight against Daesh in Iraq, which is vital both to the security of the country and the region and to our own security. In both Iraq and Afghanistan, coordination among allies within the relevant fora is crucial, within the framework of both the Global Coalition Against Daesh and NATO, to protect our common security interests in those two countries.
